We ordered the pecking duck, one appetizer and soft drinks. Very reasonable price for the "show". The staff was really nice, no English at all like all China. We had a great meal!

Service is good by very attentive staff. The duck is juicy and the ja jiang noodle is one of the best. You have to go early otherwise the wait can be as long as an hour or more. Otherwise go after 8 for a shorter...More

Perhaps having been to Deyuan a few nights beforehand set the bar too high. We were looking forward to our second duck dinner but left really disappointed. We had a very grumpy waitress and the portion size was tiny. Wouldn't recommend. Go to Deyuan instead....More

We selected this over DaDong despite the recommendation of our hotel concierge to go to DaDong; a local later confirmed that Siji Minfu has better food and lower prices. We had ½ roasted duck, cold snow pea shoots with fried taro on top, lamb with...More

We arrived at 8pm and were told a 30 minute wait, but in fact it was only about 10 minutes. I would advise arriving later as some of the other guests are leaving. The duck was excellent - well carved by our chef at our...More

Went there on a Friday night for dinner with a friend. It is true that you have to wait outside for a bit but you can help yourself with some free appetizer and soft drinks. They also provide plenty of stool for outside. We bought...More

This is clearly a local favorite, as people line up and wait hours to get in. But the wait is worth it. Superbly roasted duck, excellent vegetables, authentic atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Trip Advisor for this recommendation. A recommended place for a taste of the famous Peking duck. Go early to avoid the long queue. If not, still a good worthwhile wait.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
TripAdvisor Reviews differ on whether you can book or not, and the best time to arrive for dinner without having to wait too long. Our family of 9 is visiting in April. Can anyone definitively confirm whether you can or can't book, please. Or can the restaurant confirm this directly? This website says it does take Reservations under the Details tab so is this correct or not?

We tried to book. We were told you could not and it was first, first served.
We are a group of 16 adults and would like to make a reservation for March 29th 2017 at 7:30PM for dinner. We are staying at the Renaissance Beijing Wangfujing while in Beijing. We can be separated into smaller tables if necessary. What is your availability? Who can we email to make reservations?.

Get your tour guide or seek the assistance if the Renaissance to do this. They have a private dining area in the 1st floor that you might request.
